Had 9 different dim sum and 1 plate of special 'ho fun' and a plate of noodles with aubergine/eggplant mixed in. Staff were always quick to attend to our needs and they were always happy to help with any problems. All the food was of above average standard for me. Everything was presented neatly. The pricing was typical of what you would expect for the amount of food that was present. Was the first time I've been in Glasgow and if I return in the future I'll be sure to come back.

The restaurant is in Glasgow's Chinatown and was patronised by several Chinese families which is usually a positive sign. The food was nice and arrived promptly, the waiting staff were attentive, replenishing our wine glasses regularly.

The cost was moderate although at the Fortune Star in Lancaster we had a nicer bottle of wine and 3 course meal for the same price as a single course and 'OK' wine here for a similar price.

The waiting staff did not appear to be assigned an area so we dealt with several of them. Chopsticks were the default eating tools with a 'Western" fork on request. We each had a chicken dish and found that individual pieces were quite large and it is not easy to cut with chopsticks.

Overall, I enjoyed the experience but not as much as in other restaurants and would look elsewhere in the future.

Been here a couple of times now. I. Both occasions we have chosen the buffet menu at £15.90 a person. This is an excellent value menu.

Technically you can eat all you want, but they do ask that you don't waste food. The restaurant itself is very large and most of the patrons were Chinese. Tables are big and decor is classic Chinese, but offers up a really nice atmosphere. Staff are pleasant and efficient.

The food is prepared fresh to order, and is served piping hot in good time and the flavours are really nice. The best dish was probably the crispy chilli chicken, which had a lovely crisp batter around the thinly cut strips, lightly steeped in a spicy peking type sauce. We also had king prawns, squid, beef in various main dishes, all which were really nice.

There is no rush to eat and the staff are happy to serve at your pace and make the experience very nice. Would recommend this restaurant as above average Chinese fare.

Very tasty food but I wished there was more of it. The price of the dishes were between £10-30 and served in saucer-sized plates. The steamed fish ( sea bass ) was served on an oval plate, a little bit bigger than a side dish plate. We are a family of Chinese food lovers so we have tried several restaurants around the area and therefore we were able to compare. The place has a nice decor with a beautiful chandelier. The location of the restaurant is convenient to the city centre and public transportation. The restaurant was almost empty when we came in around 7 in the evening and most of the patrons were Caucasian. I always believe that if an ethnic restaurant is very good, it is usually frequented by its own people. The service is very good, no hovering, no pressure. My opinion is that this restaurant is for tourists. Good to try for the first time but we are not tourists so we know better.

If you are looking for Authentic Chinese food then go here, this is a proper Chinese restaurant, simply the best, my husband and I have visted China on holiday which made us fall in love with Chinese food, Chinatown on a Sunday lunch time is amazing, the Dim Sum menu is extensive and so delicious give it a try , we have ended up going here now most Sundays and really look forward to it, the food, service, atmosphere all great, if you are unsure of any of the dishes the staff are so helpful and will explain them to you.
